Description
Poor art school student Suzuki Keiichi wakes up one day to find himself as part of an auction in some desert land he knows nothing about as a way to pay off his debts. He has no idea what's happened to him until he's suddenly bought by a man he's never seen in a language he doesn't understand. He's terrified, and it turns out the man is a prince who bought him to be the servant of his younger brother. Every day he plots a way to escape from this unknown land, but he finds himself slowly captivated by the prince's charms.

I really get hooked on stories about middle eastern type of settings, the seme are just forceful and emit dangerous pheromones all over....but this one emits gentleness. Still, I love it....the slow pacing of the love story was beautiful....I cried with the climax of the story it was so touching for me but it was a good thing the later chapters made amends smile

I wish this story just went on and on I wouldn't get bored.

At first I thought that the art isn`t really my cup of tea, but that I just ignored.
The story was interesting since I have a fetish for arabic like dressings and such and the characters had a nice personality.
I wanted to rate it low first, but then - Thank God! - the first end wasn`t the real one.

This is among the very few mangas related to the Middle East that I have actually enjoyed. The theme has never been a fascination for me and probably never will, thus every time I pick up a book Middle Eastern-themed I always have a bit of a prejudiced mind-set, unfortunately. That is also why once I've liked something it must be way above the bunch. This manga is definitely better than many out there despite its flaws. The way the main story was told could have been better though. It did take me some time to get over some slightly incomprehensible moments, nonetheless I do like the story a lot. The art is also very nice, subtle and elegant, as expected from the mangaka. She's definitely got me hooked.

I didn't mind it, there was just such lack of depth, in any sense. The main character was annoying, especially in the beginning, it gradually got better, but there was no revaluation. I also found the ending unsatisfactory if not just a bit confusing. It just sort of scooted along the whole time, never swept me away, but I don't regret reading it.

If I'm being completely honest the oneshot would have made a way better story, character wise at the very least.

Because it takes place in the desert and the characters seemed to be interesting at first, I thought this one would be good. It was not for me. The story, though the autor tries to connect it with some real cultural background, it just remains absurd. This is one of those plots charged with pathetism, introducing secondary characters that are suposed to make the main ones likeable or at least justify their behaviour or personality. (big and little brother issues, grandfather)

I really didn't like it from the very first pages, guess this wasn't for me, for I can't explain why it has high ratings nor good reviews below.

The art is kinda simple, to say the least, although I liked that the main character looked a lot like Watanuki from xxxHolic, though it had nothing in common personality wise.
What I loved was the story, the slow romance (well not that slow considering it's just an oneshot bigrazz) , and the characters that had backgrounds and well defined personalities.
Really worth a read.

If you love Yamanaka Hiko, I recommend Hideyoshico.

This tale was suspenseful with a unique, emotional art style. The tension created by the dominant prince kept me turning the pages (slowly--to absorb every detail!). At the same time, the art and story both had a gentle, tender air about them.

In the future, I hope Yamanaka writes a longer series, so she is given a chance to expand and develop her characters and their interactions together further.
